With Valentine’s day just around the corner, I figured some of you might be in the mood for a little romance.
Hey gang, I’m your host Brian Rollins and this is the Dorky Geeky Nerdy trivia podcast. This week, we’re diving into the genre of Romance. Movies that have love as either a main theme or strong part of the film. It’s a broad category that lets us visit a lot of different films.
As always, it’s three rounds of 10 questions each. A dorky round, a geeky round, and a nerdy round. If you need rules or a score card, you can find those at DorkyGeekyNerdy.com.
